some other way
but not another reason to continue
and now you're one of us
I am a bit tough on the outside, but my hardened shell, like many animals, is created to protect a very delicate interior. As a result, few ever find their way through the armor. Once inside, some cannot take what they find there.
LAST LINES OF AN AMERICAN PRAYER
Do you know how pale and wanton thrillful comes Death on a strange hour
Unannounced, unplanned for
Like a scaring, overfriendly guest you've brought to bed?
Death makes angels of us all
and gives us wings where we had shoulders
smooth as ravens' claws.
No more money, no more fancy dress,
This other Kingdom seems by far the best
Until its other jaw reveals incest
And loose obedience to a vegetable law.
I Will Not Go
Prefer A Feast Of Friends
To The Giant Family
